Cheslin Kolbe dazzles at 10 for Toulouse in Top 14
Cheslin Kolbe dazzled at fly-half for Toulouse on his fell debut in that position for the French club.
The World Cup winning winger is known for wreaking havoc on the wing, but World Cup winning Springbok Cheslin Kolbe went into unchartered territory with a shock positional switch for Toulouse today.
The man looked confident in the warm-up for the match slotting kicks from everywhere on the pitch.
What amazed us was the confidence that he had on the ball.
In the first half the ball was spilled on his very own try line and he decided to play out from there. That takes some serious plums to be fair.
If that wasn’t impressive enough, Kolbe was then seen kicking the penalties from his team from the sidelines. Is there anything this man can’t do.
Here is the clip of his massively impressive conversion from the touch line.
We are massive fans of Kolbe here at Rugby Onslaught and we still can’t quite believe that we get to see him in action at 10 for Toulouse!
He then went on to score 48m penalty kick later in the game.
This kick was even more impressive to see! We couldn’t believe it!
The dancing feet of Kolbe have lit up Rugby World Cup 2019 with the winger showing that size isn’t everything, his footwork and pace allowing him to turn a defence inside out and leave players clutching at thin air in his wake.
The Springbok started six tests in 2019 and scored five tries, including two in the pool stage against Italy when he was named Player of the Match. An ankle injury ruled him out of the semi-final with Wales but the Springboks was able to return to form for the final game where he scored that famous winning try, skinning Owen Farrell in the process.
Toulouse are missing Romain Ntamack and some of their key players due to the Six Nations. It seems like they don’t miss them too much!
